24, again, that's all very slow as you head over to the tunnel or down to san ramon. new injury crash northbound 87 near 85 in the southern part of san jose almaden valley there. but traffic on all of the freeways is very slow in the santa clara valley. it's 8:32. back to the desk. all right. thank you. recent protests in berkeley that turned violent, well, that's prompted the city council to change the way the police can respond to protests. this after demonstrators accused the police of using excessive force. brian flores is live in berkeley. you can tell us what the city council decided and also the emotional reaction to it. brian? >> reporter: hi, dave, good morning. it's emotion for many people in berkeley. i got done speaking with a person who works here. he says the business owner that he works for is very upset over the position from last night. but you have the other side. people would feel there was excessive force by the berkeley
8:33 am
police during the protests. we continue to be on shaddock university where many businesses were damaged as a result of the protests back in december. in terms of what happened last night, about 50 speakers took to the podium during the city council meeting to speak out about how police handle protesters during the black lives matter rallies in december. last night, the council unanimously proposed forbidding police from using tear gas and rubber bullets. this man described december as a war zone but also says it was a delicate balance between first amendment rights an police safety. >> the issue is that the demonstrators are out of line. they will probably all tell you oh, we're nonviolent. but they are sheltering the ones who are violent and they know they are doing it. >> it makes me mad to know that we live in a system where police can devalue black lives.
8:34 am
>> reporter: before the meeting anti-police protesters marched peacefully from uc berkeley to the old city hall where the meeting was held. the council voted to purchase body and dash-cam cameras. one person who didn't intend the meeting was the police chief. that was noted by several of the people who attended the meeting. back out here live, shaddock university, these are a couple of businesses affected by the protests last december. the mcdonald's that you saw, this bike shop as well. we have spoken to many people. we tried to get in touch with business owners. we couldn't get in touch with them, neither could we get in touch with berkeley police to get reaction. back to you. >> brian flores in berkeley. thank you. 8:34. meantime, the white house is creating a new federal agency to fight cyber attacks. this comes ahead of president obama's bay area visit this week that includes a
8:35 am
cybersecurity summit on friday at stanford. in the past nine months, cyber attacks targeted home depot, target, jpmorgan chase, and sony pictures. in fact, just yesterday, a group claiming to be tied to isis says it hacked the twitter account of newsweek magazine. here's the manner reading cyber cal -- cyber callie fate. the hackers also claimed to have sensitive u.s. government information. >> the saying goes in the security business, there are only two kinds of companies. companies that have been hacked and companies that don't know they've been hacked yet. everybody will be hacked. >> about 400 ceos are expect to be at the summit at stanford on friday including tim cook and executives from google, yahoo! and facebook. some of the presidential fleet of aircraft, they are already
8:36 am
-- they've already arrived in the bay area. you probably saw this over the skies in san francisco. three ospreys, the plane with the propeppers on the top of the wings, and some of the president's helicopters. now, the aircraft typically arrives several days ahead of a presidential visit. president obama is due to arrive at sfo about 5:30 thursday night. he's due to leave saturday morning. 8:36. an 8.3 million-dollar settlement has been reached in the wrongful death lawsuit of an inmate at the san you da rita jail in dublin -- santa rita jail in dublin. it involves martin harrison of oakland. he was arrested for jaywalking and failing to appear in court in a dui case five years ago. lawyers say when he was booked, he told a jail hours he had a history of alcohol withdrawals but did not receive proper treatment. a few days later, he suffered a severe withdraw and deputies used a taser to try to subdue him. >> came after the deputies.
8:37 am
he was tased and at at that point he was taken to the medical portion of the jail and subsequently died thereafter. >> alameda county and the jail healthcare provider will split paying the settlement which is the largest in california history. the settlement will be paid to harrison's four adult children. they will have to implement new procedures for how it screens its inmates. if you haven't done it all right, you should start taking edits in san francisco phone numbers on your cell phone. starting in ten days, if you dial a san francisco number, you are gonna have to start with a 1 and then the area code, 4 5. that apply -- 415. that applies to people living in san francisco calling a number across the street. >> that could take a long time, combing through finding your contacts. >> this change is paving the way for san francisco's area
8:38 am
code, a of 628 number. that new plea fix could begin next month. the new numbers in san francisco, marin and parts of san mateo county will have the 628 area code. events at the pebble beach national pro am continue. right now, the final black tibbs round is underway and the celebrity challenge kicks off in a few hours. joe fonzi joins us live from pebble beach with more on the action taking place. the weather is gorgeous this weekend. they are so lucky. >> reporter: it is perfect, tori. golf is a sport for the early bird. the early birds are either out on the course and a few of them are here on the practice putting green. a little later, the celebrities will be out here in advance of the shootout which happens later today. as you said, the second practice round of the week, yesterday, a tradition that's been going on for five years now was another shootout for
8:39 am
charity. it paired members of the 49ers and giants against each other as they earned $100,000 for charity. we know that matt cain, the giants' pitch kerr hit the ball a -- pitcher can hit the ball a long way. steve young, putt on the 17th hole, the fourth hole they played. but then that was -- it's a one- tie all-time format. that putt was tied. that meant they had to go to a chipoff on the 18th whole which dwight clark won for the 49th team. not the best you will see but it was good enough to win. that meant the 49ers won four holes, the giants one won. the 49ers get the bragging rights for the 49er/giant shootout for this year. as we said today, it will be about celebrities. they do what's called a whiskey run. they play the first hole, second, third and then make the turn at 17 and 18. i think whiskey has something
8:40 am
to do with the traditions. phil harris, i can remember him walking around out here with the whiskey while the golf was being played. some of the history that makes this so interesting and so much fun, bing crosby known for years and years as the crosby. if you look at this hall of fame of people who have won the tournament, it's a who's who of golf. jack nicklaus, arnold palmer. that's why this place has so much history. the founder here at the pebble beach corporation, he was one of the guys instrumental in this place being established in the first place. it's been called one of the most beautiful meetings of land and sea and on the planet, really, it's hard to argue that. this will be one of those days where it's like that. and then they start to play for real. another thick that makes this tournament so special, it's the only tournament left on the tour where the celebrities were -- or amateurs play for all three rounds of the actual
8:41 am
competition can make the cut and may on sunday. that all gets started on thursday. but for today, one more round of celebrity fun before it gets going tomorrow. >> and i'm just curious about any of the familiar names, celebrities we'll see, is bill murray gonna be back this year? >> reporter: yeah. clint eastwood who has not played for a long time is supposed to be playing today. huey lewis, ray romano, andy garcia, guys who have been here in the past. they will be playing today. we'll have a report at 5:00 and 6:00. they will be here on the putting green not too far from now. >> we'll look for your report. european ryder cup captain paul mcginn lip's golf mcginley's gob -- mctwinly's golf clubs were stolen. when he returned to his rented suv the rear window was smashed
8:42 am
and his custom made clubs, travel documents, including his passport, all gone as well as ryder cup mow mown toes -- mementos to be accuse -- auctioned off. he said he was pretty disappointed but said it can happen in any country, any city. >> all right. 8:42. valentine's day a couple of daysaway. if you don't have an idea for a gift for someone you love, don't worry. you will get an idea that will leave you with not one but two presents. after 6 years as host of the daily show, jon stewart is stepping down. speculation about what he do next. it's been a superslow commute into the silicon valley. we've had accidents but we just have a lot of slow traffic
